    I was wondering, how do teacher make A* predictions of A2 maths?
    I was told you had to get 90+ UMS average in AS. Is that true?

    Not for me,

    it's 80% avg at AS then 90% on C3 and C4.

    They take your grades and your work ethic into consideration.

    They usually take into consideration how well you did in C1 and C2 when making the prediction.

    For instance, I did really well in them and got predicted an A* in Maths because they showed I understood Core well. I'd assume that's the same for most schools if they're making a prediction of A* in Maths A Level.

    The conditions you have to satisfy to achieve an A* in Maths is getting 480/600 (80% overall) with 180 UMS being made up by C3 and C4.

    Depends on your school. Normally if you are on the boundary of a 90% average eg 88%, they are likely to predict you an A*

    The reality is that there are no rules

    Your school may have guidelines but most schools just accept individual teacher predictions
